     2 and 3

    • Gravitational force of the Moon
    • Centrifugal force fo the Earth 

    First of all about tides, Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun. Tides occur in the oceans and sea by combining the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun, combined with the rotation of the earth. The type of gravitational force that causes tides is known as “Tractive” force.

    Ocean tides are generated by combining the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun, combined with the rotation of the earth. The moon’s gravitational pull is stronger than the suns which make it the most important factor in creating tides. The sun gravitational force on the earth is only 46 percent that of the moon. The highest tides in the world are at the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, Canada.
